i’ll never grasp how
our trajectories connect
always my feet are solid
shifted as the sky burns
hot pink heart
set slowly spinning
tonight you preen
it’s not just me
giving new hues
i want to steal you
show you off
caught up in you & hushed
i promise i tried
you know how lenses lie
even with all my strength and focus and zooming
tonight you’re mine
alone & you're blooming
all my budded tears
